Back in 2005, in Methuen MA, three roofers claimed to have found a hoard of old currency when they were digging in their yard. The story made national headlines, and they were guests on several morning TV shows. Their story unraveled when someone tipped off authorities that they found the money in the rafters of a barn they were hired to work on. They, of course, wanted to keep the money, and the land owner, an older woman, said it was hers.
I'd like to know what the eventual outcome was. Does anyone know? A Google search just gave me the original story. This is not the Columbus, Ohio 'Wall of Greed' find.
